What is the most common question we are asked????
Well, here it is.
By far, one of the most common questions we are asked at Shore Aerial is “Do you fly the plane and take the pictures at the same time?”
No. We never have a single pilot flying the airplane and taking the pictures for safety reasons. This would be like driving your car on the Parkway, taking both hands off the wheel, and taking pictures out of your window. It not smart and most importantly not safe.
All Shore Aerial fixed wing photo flights are flown with a staff of two pilots, one of which is a commercial pilot. This allows for one pilot to concentrate on flying the plane while the other focuses on taking the pictures. When doing aerial flights, the plane is usually flying low and slow in a circle around the site which requires precision flying and total concentration.
